Not too long ago I came across this handy little program called Konfabulator. It worked on both my Mac and my XP (an old 400 mhz machine with broadband…the equivilent of a Model A Ford on the autobahn). The software was recently bought and revamped by Yahoo!, and is now called Yahoo! Widgets. Give it a try. It’s free, and the weather, calendar, and picture frame (which can shuffle through your folders, or a flickr account) are just the tip of the iceberg. There are sports scores, news headlines and 1,000 other widgets.
Hey, shoudn’t Yahoo! be payin’ me or something?
